Hi guys,
I'm on the market for a used popping rod; I'd prefer a Shimano Caranx Kaibutsu LG or a Tuna Sniper 40/40.
I would be using it MOSTLY for shore fishing here in Baja where I live and play.
I'm open to other brands and model as well.
Thanks,
Emilio

I was going to import Shimano Caranx Kaibutsu popping rod the the US as starting popping rods, but I decided not to because there were some reports that the rods get broken easily.,
I tested 8'6" Tuna Sniper 40/60 rods for tuna and they are good for the money. But I regard them as starting rods.

The tuna sniper is a much better choice I have one and it had been flawless so far on yellowfin up to 100#.But at the end of the day its no Blackhole :D
